Happy New Year, hope everyone had a good December!
Our work party is this Saturday, January 13th from 9AM 'til Noon for South Portage Bay Reclamation/Montlake Waterfront Park. We will be planting (hopefully getting some plants from Green Seattle Partnership), mulching and weeding at the regular loop trail location behind the 4 Seasons Apartment at the waterfront. Also, we will have 2 employees from the STARBUCKS' Madison Park Store helping us in addition to Cathy Garrison who also works for Starbucks. This is the beginning of the Make Your Mark Program which has a financial reward for our group through the participation of Starbucks employees in our parkland restoration project.
We will be working RAIN OR SHINE, but the forecast is for SUNSHINE. The South Portage Bay Reclamation /Montlake Waterfront Park is essentially a volunteer effort by community members, supported by Seattle Parks and Recreation (they supply tools and mulch, we do the work).
THANKS EVERYONE!! We have tools and gloves, but bring your own if you like, especially if you have a hoe you can use to clear weeds on the path. Also, we will have snacks and drinks provided by STARBUCKS!!
We meet in the parking lot behind the Four Seasons Apartments at Boyer Avenue East and 15th Ave. East, west of the Montlake Play field at the Portage Bay Shoreline.
